Starting MARCH 1st we are DECREASING OUR MEDICAL VISIT FEES!
In these uncertain times one thing is for sure; prices are going up...EXCEPT IN OUR OFFICE!
The costs of billing medical insurance for medical eye emergencies like pink eye, removal of ocular foreign bodies, eyelid swelling, etc. has increased everywhere else. Over time, I have begun to feel as if I'm working for your insurance company rather than being your eye doctor.
Our medical visit fees will be reduced to $270/hour with a 20 minute minimum per visit, which will be self-pay. At the end of your appointment you will receive a properly coded medical form that you will be able to submit directly to your insurance carrier for personal reimbursement.
To be clear, we are NOT dismissing you as a patient!
And, this will NOT affect how we DIRECTLY bill for Medicare or VSP.

The cost of routine eye exams and prescription eyewear can be of real concern, especially for large families. In many cases, vision insurance can lower these annual expenses.
A vision insurance policy is not the same as medical insurance. Regular medical health insurance plans protect you against financial losses due to unexpected eye injuries or disease. Vision insurance, on the other hand, is a wellness benefit designed to provide routine eye care, prescription eyewear and other vision-related services at a reduced cost.
